Second Gen Koleos Coming

24 July 2014

It has been revealed that Renault will be unveiling an all-new Koleos SUV in the not-too-distant future.

Speaking to CarAdvice in Australia, Renault Australia managing director Justin Hocevar stated that a second generation of the Koleos is in the works. This is good news, since the SUV is in need of a replacement. It was originally launched in 2008, and although it has received some updates, it is starting to show its age.

However, Hocevar also revealed that we won’t be seeing the new Koleos this year – or even next year, for that matter. The second-gen model is apparently still two years away (2016), so the current Koleos will still need to soldier on for quite some time.

Like the current version, the new Koleos will be heavily based on the Nissan X-Trail thanks to the Renault-NIssan alliance.
